Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
Another classic eatery on the Harlem Restaurant and Retail month list is Chez Lucienne located at 308 Lenox and 125th Street. The $20.11 Prix Fixe offers up some French classics like Escargot de Bourgogne (photo) and a choice of second course such as Croque Monsieur. There doesn't seem to be a day restriction on this offer so drop by Harlem's first authentic French bistrot before Restaurant month ends at May 15th. All photos by Evi Abeler.
